> Hi,
> I am encountering a performance problem in
> AbstractLinkedList.retainAll().  It appears in version 3.2.1 and also
> in revision 1355448.  I attached a test that exposes this problem and
> a one-line patch that fixes it.  On my machine, for this test, the
> patch provides a 158X speedup.
> To run the test, just do:
> $ java Test
> The output for the un-patched version is:
> Time is 5531
> The output for the patched version is:
> Time is 35
> As the patch shows, the problem is that
> "AbstractLinkedList.retainAll(Collection<?> coll)" performs
> "coll.contains(it.next())" for each element in the AbstractLinkedList,
> which can be very expensive if "coll.contains()" is expensive, e.g.,
> when "coll" is a list.
> The one-line patch I attached puts the elements of "coll" in a HashSet
> (which has very fast "contains()"), if "coll" is not already a set:
> "if (!(coll instanceof java.util.Set<?>)) coll = new java.util.HashSet<Object>(coll);"
> Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding the intended behavior? If so,
> can you please confirm that the patch is correct?
> Thanks,
> Adrian
